NDIS providers and Third Party Verification in NSW

On 1 July 2018, the NDIS Quality and Safeguards Commission (NDIS Commission) commenced operations in New South Wales (NSW) and South Australia (SA).

The NDIS Commission is responsible for the registration and regulation of providers in NSW and SA.

 

The NDIA no longer has the authority to approve registration applications for providers in NSW and SA.

NSW and SA providers will continue to interact with the NDIA for a range of functions including service bookings, payment requests, and viewing participants’ plans in the myplace portal.

 

The NDIS Commission will commence in other states and territories from 1 July 2019, with the exception of Western Australia where it will commence on 1 July 2020.

 

 

Registering as an NDIS provider in NSW

Registering as an NDIS provider in NSW is a process that has been agreed by the NDIS and NSW government through the NSW Quality and Safeguard Transitional Working Arrangements, which outline the process in place until the National Quality and Safeguarding Framework is implemented.

Requirements

Requirements are outlined in 'Section 3 Requirements for Providers' of the NSW Quality and Safeguards Working Arrangements document.

Requirements for existing NSW FACS (ADHC) funded service providers (who wish to provide like service or expand their service offering), new providers, and existing Commonwealth funded disability services (including those who wish to expand their service offering) are outlined in Section 3 of the document.

The requirements for registering as a provider depend on which support clusters you are registering for. These are outlined in Appendix 2 of the document.

Third Party Verification

Third Party Verification is one of the requirements for registration against the clusters outlined in Appendix 2 Part B of the NSW Quality and Safeguards Working Arrangements document.
